Students in Miss Emma’s second grade class in Valley Road School in Clark is exploring how to write how-to texts in which they explain how to create or perform something. One of the students’ favorite activities to do in winter time is to build a snowman. Each student has their own unique way of creating a snowman and have written a how to text to explain it using precise words. Some use coal for the eyes and mouth, while others use jelly beans or grapes. Each snowman is one of a kind just like the creators. Pictured above are Dylan Costa (left) and Tania Oliveira.
